Netflix releases trailer for LOCKWOOD & CO.

Netflix has premiered the trailer for “Lockwood & Co.,” the young adult drama based on Jonathan Shroud’s hit novel series, which is set to premiere on January 27th.

In London, ghost hunters venture nightly into perilous combat with deadly spirits. Amidst the many corporate, adult-run agencies, one stands alone: independent of any commercial imperative or adult supervision.

This tiny startup is run by two teenage boys and a newly arrived, supremely psychically gifted girl, a renegade trio destined to unravel a mystery that will change the course of history: Lockwood & Co.

Ruby Stokes, Paddy Holland, Bobby Vernon, Morven Christie, Luke Treadaway, Ivanno Jeremiah, Ali Hadji-Heshmati, Rhianna Dorris, and Hayley Konadu star in the series, while Jack Bandeira, Ishtar Currie Wilson, and Jemma Moore guest star.

Attack the Block and The Kid Who Would Be King writer/director Joe Cornish serves as showrunner and directs the first episode, with William McGregor helming subsequent entries. Ed Hime, Kara Smith, and Joy Wilkinson pen the scripts.

Agency client Catherine Morshead (The Fully Monty, Becoming Elizabeth, No Offence) directs three episodes as third block director. Catherine Morshead is represented by Katie Haines.
